The food was delicious. I would have liked a little slower pace. Our meals were served in less than ten minutes.

We made several smaller reservations for a party of 10. When we arrived, we were able to be seated as one large group. Only issue was that they were not able to give separate checks, we had to sit and figure out who owed what...not a big deal, but it took a while at the end of the dinner.

Food was very good and the service was good but impersonal; I felt like I was being rushed to turnover the table. We could have had our entire meal from being seated to leaving the restaurant in 30 minutes if I didn't push to take it a bit slower. If you want to have a good meal and you're in a hurry, don't mind being rushed, don't want to have a conversation without shouting then this is the place for you. Food was great but just too noisy, impersonal and rushed for me.

There are two entrances which was confusing upon entry. We went in the smaller entrance and had a table directly at the bottom of the stairs. Not super great, as we had asked for a quieter table and were in the most trafficked area. We saw the larger dining room when we left and walked around the corner and wondered why we hadn't been shown in what was clearly the main entrance. We started with a glass of chianti which was robust and warm. Lovely body and color too. We had the tomato broth muscles to start, thinking they were the more traditional white wine and garlic prep. Though the tomato broth was a surprise, the muscles were fresh and tasty. Dinner took the cake though. Lobsters ravioli with crab sauce was amazing and the lamb raggu with home made rigatoni was fantastic. It is all about the cooks at this place. Table service was also very good. We didn't get the server's name but they all seemed to work as a team which made service well above average. We will be back for more tasty eats. Thanks for a lovely meal on New Years Eve!

The Restaurant went OUT OF IT'S WAY to accommodate our party of 14 plus a baby in a high chair on short notice during a Holiday Week. Friendly, efficient waiters were at our beckon call. Food came out hot, with all served at once with sufficient time between courses. Appetizers were small for the $$$ but tasty. A true Neopolitan Gem in Boston's North End.

Our party of 6 was promptly seated and service was attentive without being intrusive. We had the cold antipasto and a wide range of entrees, all of which were delicious. Our only complaint was related to the temperature in the room. The room we were in is normally used for outdoor dining in the warmer months. In the winter, the canvas sides come down and the heat lamps are on. They provide comfort above the tables but our legs were cold. Overall a good experience and we would go there again but would ask for a different room in the colder weather.

Small place. Came here because of the good reviews and value, but not impressed at all. Food is ok, had zuppa, showed the waiter pic from yelp which came with pasta, but our came without. Waiter says that is different dish..... what about the pic you just saw?
Also had lobster and scallops special, not good all.
Fry calimori is the only good.

Also, tony bathroom that you don’t want to use.

Waiter failed to tell us the specials, gave a single sheet wine list (while other tables had multiple sheets), and never offered to give us bread nor keep our bottle of wine chilled in a bucket during dinner. Paid more attention to other diner who happened to be white. That aside, the food was exceptional and we still left 20% tip because we’re foodies who appreciate robust flavors and exceptional high quality food like what we enjoyed at Trattoria Il Panino.

Had an early dinner with a party of 4 and every dish was wonderful. The ragu was a home run and reminded me of Sunday dinner as a child. The service was exactly what we needed; not over attentive, not underwhelming. We were able to carry out uninterrupted conversation which makes me believe this is a decent spot for business dinners. Our server recommended a great bottle of Italian red that didn’t break the bank. Overall a great experience and my new “go-to” in the North End.

There are two separate “il paninos” the original and the newer location around the corner which used to be cafe Pompeii. We were seated in the basement of the new location which desperately needs a remodel. (Feels like you’re in a basement, which you are) service was rushed. Food was about average.

Too expensive for the quality of the food. My fiance's lasagna had cold cream on top. He was too hungry to complain. My pasta was served in a metal pan which is cool, but the sauce ended up tasting like metal as well. The waitress was rushing us the entire time. The bread arrived before the drinks. The area of the restaurant we were seated in was actually outdoors in a tent with heating and where I was seated I could feel a cold draft.
